12/11/2011 at Al Abraq Al Habari and Jahra Farms

I was the first  in the morning to arrive to Al Abraq finding Crested Honey Buzzard. I managed to relocate the bird after over one hour and photograph it. Then Mike and Silvie Newey arrived narrowly missing her. However, we saw some 15 Steppe Eagles and 6 Black Kites migrating over farm. There were also two Sparrowhawks and Kestrel. After Al Abraq we drove to Jahra farms. There highlights were 2 Hypocolius and Shikra.
